Acadian Ambulance is holding an open house for high school students interested in becoming an Explorer. During the open house, students will learn more about the Exploring program and be able to meet the Post Advisor, Acadian Ambulance Paramedic Field Supervisor Jenny Bladen, and other Acadian Ambulance medics. Exploring is a career study program created by Boy Scouts of America for young men and women ages 14–20. It provides an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of careers and to network with professionals already in those fields. Explorers are able to get firsthand experience to determine whether or not a particular career is right for them. Acadian Ambulance’s posts are specifically designed for students who are interested in the medical field. The program provides real-world and hands-on experiences, helping participants develop critical skills necessary for a successful career in emergency medicine. Explorers can earn their Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers certification. Acadian Explorers provide assistance and basic medical services at community events, fairs, festivals and sporting events.
